Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.

  • Good Questions: An FAQ About Election Coverage in Seven Days

    In May, Seven Days was selected to participate in the Clarify Your Elections Coverage program through the nonprofit Trusting News. The organization tasked participating news outlets with providing answers to frequently asked questions about political stories. The idea was to improve transparency and help readers understand how reporters and editors approach their work Why require publications to follow this format? According to Trusting News, this presentation "offers users a casual, accessible way to learn more about how your newsroom covers elections and politics. FAQs tend to be more conversational and can help newsrooms address ... how they plan to cover races, politicians and voting. They can also help make election coverage feel less overwhelming by quickly pointing people to the basic information they need to participate in elections."

  • Backstory: This Year’s ‘Funniest Fact-Check’ Set the Record Straight on Tit vs. Teat

    Seven Days' special Dairy Issue was devoted entirely to examining the viability of Vermont's signature agricultural industry. Here the elephant in the room is the "cow in the barn." I was the lead editor on the project. The anchor story, by Kirk Kardashian, provided a historical overview as well as essential info about how the business works. It needed some color, so I inserted a quick anecdote about Fred Tuttle, the folksy dairy farmer who had starred in John O'Brien's 1996 film Man With a Plan, then actually ran for the U.S. Congress in real life as a publicity stunt to promote the movie.
